  • What we do

    The ACF was founded back in 1860 by Miss Octavia Hill with the threat of the French invasion.

    In WW2 the ACF played a key roll in the defence of the British Isles.

    Since then the ACF has done so many things for this Country and many Famous people were at one time Cadet including Jodie Marsh, Peter Kay, Zoe Ball and our own Chris Moyles yes he was at one time a Cadet of what is now know as C Coy in fact i am lead to believe he was at Seacroft.

    But what we do:

    at your Detachment Training nights you can expect some of the following things:

    Drill & Turnout (to instill disipline, teamwork & Leadership)
    Skill at Arms (to train you how to fire a weapon safley)
    Map & Compass (so that when you do Expeditions you dont get lost)
    Military Knoweledge (So you can show pride in the ACF and your Regiment)
    Shooting (most dets have a range for you to shoot on)
    Filed craft (although it may be slightly limited due to lack of grass in Leeds)
    Physical Training (to get you fit so you dont Biff out)
    Cadet & Community (to instill community pride and show the public what you are)
    First Aid (so you can save lives if the occasion arrises)

    These Subjects are broken down into different lessons to help them more digestable and they are also broken down into APC (Army Proficiency Certificate) Levels starting at Basic, 1 Star, 2 Star, 3 Star, 4 Star and then Master Cadet.

    You also have the ability to do Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme through the ACF and you can gain a BTEC in Public Services worth 4 GCSE's at A-C level without doing any extra work all you do is turn up to cadets through the week and attend as many weekend camps and courses as you can.

    We also do Leadership courses in the ACF which are done to a very high standard and are good for those cadet wishing to persue a career in the Army as an Officer.

    If you have any more questions just email at ccoyyacf@armymail.mod.uk

    Tut kieron.. your writing is going downhill ;) its .22 not 2.2 :o not meaning to be petty like lmao... And ye i think the main part about that presentation is the part about them being AIR CADETS lolz... Thats why hardly any joined haha

    haha when i was in year 8 we had the Air cadets from Thornbury come into Priesthorpe and they did a talk about what they did and shit..showed a presentation bl bla bla..then went on about what they fired..( 2.2 Rifle ) haha...anyways after you could see the 2.2 rifle which was in a carry case..wernt aloud to touch like anyways that did get alot of attention...but because they went on about boring stuff...technical details about gliders i doubt many joined up...however ACF seems more appealing and fun :)

    Actually not meaning to kill anyones spirits but even in a school it needs paperwork, AND the schools permission, and sadly not many schools are willing to give support to the ACF... For the best results we need the ACF permission and paperwork done, this way we would be allowed to do it in uniform and maybe get some webbing + kit. also if we can get an AI with us then we could possibly bring along a DP, which would really get the kids attention. :) Also if we need any props like posters, leaflets etc. then ill take care of that :D
